Magical Wedding at Clearwell Castle

I'm almost embarrassed to tell you that I very nearly didn't take this wedding on. I was already fully booked for 2022 but there was something about planner Andri's initial email and mood boards that sucked me in and BOY am I glad I did! Every ounce of it was worth the extra work load...

"It’s quite an eclectic brief as the groom is really into science and Victorian magic posters while the bride loves bright colours, Alice in Wonderland and vintage carnivals!" Andri Benson, Always Andri

I set to work, the most magical, eccentric concepts coming to life, pop up posters, a spinning cog, and the end choice these most incredible foiled and packed invitation playing cards. Complete with tarot inspired bespoke illustration's of the bride and groom on the face cards and the invitation wording encapsulated within the 'heart' suit.

Initially the guests only received the heart suit as their invitations and upon attending the wedding were then presented with the full set of cards, a perfect keepsake to the jawdropping day.

Shannon and Nic had chosen to work with the immensely talented Andri, from Always Andri to deliver their day and they must have done their homework as the end result that was brought together was simply breathtaking. Packed with personality, punch and passion. The delicate yet dramatic flowers created by Jasper + Quinn just brought the whole space to life. From the bouquets to the theatrical 'swoosh' display behind the ceremony and top table each flower, petal and leaf were absolutely and perfectly as nature intended.

The on the day stationery did not let the side down, a 2 metre order of the day scroll set the scene while the perfectly coloured teal place names, perfectly styled menus and vintage magician posters lent themselves to the table names.


Again a highlight of the day (well I am a stationer) was the incredible interactive vintage displayed test tube table plan. With each guest following the hand illustrated vintage style instruction board, searching for their name on the tag, picking their test tube and finding their table name on the reverse this really was a wow moment for the guests.

​Shannon & Nic - Thank you entrusting me to really let loose with your brief, bringing pure joy and delight to your guests both before and during your wedding. I hope you know how proud I am of what we have created and it brings happiness to you for the rest of your lives together.
